About this collection

This digital collection contains selected reports from the Harrison Buzz Price Papers. These reports are only a small percentage of the Price collection and were selected for their research use by the faculty of the Rosen College of Hospitality Management.

Price was best known for his work as an economics consultant for themed attractions and entertainment venues. Price began his career by assisting with the placement of Disneyland in Anaheim in the early 1950s and later Disney World in Orlando in the 1960s. Price went on to found Economics Research Consultants (ERA), which he sold in 1969. He then started the Harrison Price Company (HPC) in 1978.

While the bulk of the Price Papers contains the business papers of the Harrison Price Company, it also includes some of Price's earliest work. Materials that can be found in the Price Papers include reports, proposals, speeches, documentation on World's Fairs and his research materials.
